LEBANON, Va.—A Virginia man was arraigned Tuesday morning in Russell County following the deaths of two people last week in a crash.
Treymane Ferguson, 51, of Ruther Glen, Virginia, was in Russell County General District Court for an arraignment hearing, according to the county’s commonwealth attorney, Zack Stoots. Ferguson requested a court appointed counsel and he continues to be held without bail.
Ferguson has been charged with reckless driving and a charge of obstruction of justice.
“No additional charges have been made, but this is an ongoing investigation which is being conducted by the Virginia State Police,” Stoots said.
On Friday night, the VSP said Ferguson was traveling the wrong way on U.S. Highway 19 and crashed into another vehicle, driven by Brian Barnes, 46, who received minor injuries. A 13-year-old female passenger is being treated in Wake Forest, North Carolina, for life-threatening injuries, VSP said.
Candace R. Barnes, 47, died at the scene, and Brenda Fields, 66, died at Johnston Memorial Hospital, VSP said.
